Direct TV & Comcast working together will never happen. there will be too much overlap trying to get the 5 main teams on at one time. isn't competition what drives up the prices and not a monopoly? Maybe I am off when channels have a regular feed, a "2" feed, and a "+" feed. I relaly do not understand why the 2 and + channels exist when only on for the overflow games. Seems like the other teams would want a better tv deal.
Also, the RSNs throughout the country carry a lot of garbage tv but their bread & butter is the live events.
Edit: Either way, there is either going to be a new RSN in the PNW or a revamped offering of Root Sports & CSN-NW and all people involved will make a lot more money.
